Walk this way

BY Laurie in Feminism

Well hot damn, it’s about time! From years of carrying Band-Aids in my purse, spending ridiculous amounts of money on pedicures and trying to come up with the perfect remedy to heal gnarly bunions and blisters, men will (for one day) grasp the reasoning behind all of my bitching. Walk A Mile In Her Shoes is an organization that will literally make men walk a mile, in heels, to protest sexualized violence against women. The walk educates the public and raises money for local rape crisis centers, domestic violence centers, and women’s services. Read More

Totally "Toxic"

BY Lisa in General

“Learn to play the ukulele” has been on my to-do list since we ran the awesome “Uke Spirit” article in our Aug/Sept ’07 issue, which highlighted a handful of fabulous ladies rocking the adorable instrument. Of course, my pink sparkly Mahalo has just been collecting dust in my room while I do a million other things but a recent visit from my friend Lana, who plays a mean uke herself, has re-inspired me. She showed me this video and now I can’t wait to get plucking. Read More

It's such a strange reality check to look back at old pictures of myself and realize that as awesome as i thought i was, i was such a mess. And it's really a universal truth...no one was as cool as they thought were in middle-school. I got this email from a friend of a friend who's working on this sweet book project, and it looks like it will be totally rad:Hi friends, This is a new project I am working on with my pal Amelia. YOU NEED TO BE A PART OF THIS! We are so very excited about AWKWEIRD, and want to get the word out about it. If you have any questions, email me. Read More
The Feminist Majority Foundation recently released the following video to explain (again!) just what feminism means, and also, to show a bunch of Hollywood A and B listers claiming themselves as feminists. I already know what feminism is, but this video left me with some other questions. Read More

Has it been nearly a week since BUST's day party at SXSW?  It was hot, hot, hot...  everything from the bands, to the bad asses struttin’ their stuff, to the amazing Austin, Texas weather! It goes without saying that I was going to party it up, rock out to amazing music, and meet cool people from around the globe. We were all there to showcase, promote and fiercely work it! I managed to do all of this while having an incredibly fun time!! I'm still not fully recovered from the 24/7 combo of work and play. Read More
